Is this a dinosaurid claw?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious if this is a beat up claw. I found it mixed in a micro site with vertebrate dinosaur material. It's small and weathered but resembles claw-like features. I'm hoping the photos represent it but not confident. I know others here could identify some subtle characteristics. It looks like random bone fragment from far but when no look closely I see possibility of a claw.

It kind of looks like the partial claw of a small theropod..

Hi guys, thanks for the comments. I agree that it looks like a claw of a small theropod but I have not seen all kinds and I'm sure there are many. Claw material is so rare even to just find beat up pieces. @hxmendoza, would you be able to weigh In?

Troodon has also been generous in his insights and knowledge.

Thanks again guys.
